Origins of Globalization draws widely on ancient sources and modern economic theory to†detail the concept of ‚eoeknown world‚e globalization,†arguing that†a†mixed economy--similar in many respects to our†own--existed in†a variety of forms throughout the ancient world.†By analyzing the business practices of the ancient world--phenomena such as resource and market seeking behavior, international trade from China, India†and Rome, to Africa and even northern and western parts of Europe, Small and Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) operating†internationally and outsourcing production, multicultural† workforces, tariff reduced zones, interregional tax issues, and the management of †currency risks--the authors provide readers with a unique historical interpretation of the contemporary globalizing economy and a durable theoretical framework for future†historical economic analyses.
